Paper Abstract

While the wave structure function has been analytically calculated for a variety of beam types, recent work has begun the exploration of higher-order beams and partially coherent beams. For these waves, no analytic wave structure function has been developed. By extending the well known split step phase screen simulations, we have developed a method of numerically simulating the wave structure function. We present the methods and results of this simulation technique, and describe its applicability to general beams.
